Title: Concert Ticket Stub display
Post by: Mac on December 16, 2011, 04:40:55 pm
I'll put this here. It's more about art than music.
I am a terrible photographer, so excuse the photo.

I finally finished a project I've been thinking about. What to do with all my ticket stubs. I've kept most of them over the years and thought one day do something. So here it is.

You can't see it very well... this is a 3 inch deep shadow box and the tickets are floating at different heights away from the back. I used styrofoam as a backer to keep them solid and flat. Otherwise, they would curl up bad with the glue.

Cool thread.

I have a ton of tickets, both in book form and tin can that I was too lazy to put into said book. I'll see if I can find it and post here. Still unpacking from my move and don't know where everything is. But when I get to it, pictures on the way.

Any chance we can get an angled view/shot of the cabinet to see the relationship of each stub?

A little more detail on the construction...

Since this shadow box came with a felt like back, I bought a roll of velcro and just used the hard hook part. This actually was a better situation because I could move stuff around very easily. The planned way involved to glue the stubs to the back and that would lock any changes I might want to do. So now I can add and remove if I want.  ;D

You did a great job on this Mac. I'm wondering if I should do the exact same thing with my batch of tickets or come up with something entirely different, although I can't see how I would improve on this.

Well thanks.

The improvements I thought about are maybe a better background, like a concert poster.
And maybe more concert related memorabilia utilized throughout. I have the recent 3D glasses for the Australian Pink Floyd and that adds some interest and breaks it up a bit.

And crap... I just looked at the back closer, where the hanging hooks are. I put the tickets on upside down.

It will only take a few minutes, but I do need to rotate them all. Good grief.

Might think about throwing in some guitar picks and a pair of drum sticks, even if they weren't from any one concert, just to add to the theme of the overall piece.

Nice design thoughts

I was going to try to incorporate drumsticks in another idea. I just didn't know what... yet  ;D
